Join Ernst, IFMGA certified guide, on an amazing 9-day ski touring program in the Lyngen Alps, in the north of Norway. Enjoy April and May for longer days!
Join me for a spectacular 9-day ski touring program in the Lyngen Alps, in the north of Norway. April is an ideal time for this tour, since the days are very long; and May is even better, since it doesn't get dark at all. Throughout these months, the snow is still powdery, perfect for our adventure.
Note: Check out my other 5 ski touring programs available in Norway below.
First, we will travel from Zurich to Tromso. Then, we will drive towards Olderdalen, where our comfortable, cozy chalet awaits (including a sauna!).
As from Day 2, I will guide on different routes among the countless slopes in the Lyngen Alps and the Kafjord Alps, in the east side of the Lyngenfjord. Some of the options include:
The classics: Storhaugen (1141m), Sorbmegaisa (1288m), Fastalstinden (1275m)
The hidden treasures: Svartfjellet (1162m), Nordmannviktinden (1355m) and Punkt (1243m)
The unnamed: a lot of great peaks haven't received a name
There is also the option of going on an excursion to the Uløya island with breathtaking descent towards the sea, and to the Arnøya island with the view of the endless polar sea.
On Day 9, we return to Tromso and fly back home.
The terrain on this tour consists of wide slopes and easy skiing conditions. Ascents are normally between 3 and 5 hours. You will need normal ski touring equipment suitable for crampons and LVS. Groups are between 2 and 6 guests.
Breakfast and dinner will be prepared by Ulrica at the chalet. The price also includes the Zurich-Tromso flight, and return. Departing from German or Austrian airports is possible upon request. Early bookings might be eligible for business class tickets, subject to availability.
This is a special price for bookings requested before November 19th, 2017. For bookings requested later the price is CHF 3280.- per person. Finally, cancellation insurance is compulsory.

I became a professional mountain guide after discovering that mountains and wild nature meant the life to me. In 1983 I completed my studies and started an amazing journey. I have been constantly on the road ever since, up in the Alps and on mountains and trekking areas on every continent.
Before I started taking guests on tours, my wife Ulrica was my climbing partner. Together, we spent many autumns in the Klausenpass climbing walls. After our daughter Heidi was born, she started coming along on our tours around the world. Later, our son Thomas and daughter Christina would join us. Even later, our granddaugther Jana came into our lives. All three of our children have become mountaineers as well. I am proud to say that world-strolling is in their blood too.
Having led groups in the Alps and other parts of the world for a long time, I witnessed how the alpine mountain landscape changed over the years. When I started off, we had to cook in the huts for ourselves. We now see suites, whirpools and saunas. Technical difficulties up in the mountain are mitigated with chains and wire ropes - a new way to live the mountain in a time-saving manner. Climbing routes that were inaccessible before have now been made open for the general public.
My heart lives for having more and more original natural experiences. This is the kind of experiences that have made us addicted to the mountain. I continue to strive for taking my guests off the beaten and better-known tracks. This is my commitment to you. I hope you can join me soon!

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.
I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.
Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!
Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
